In book 12, the S.S.M.P. needs to track down the boss-monster and get their monster notebook back! Alexander, Rip, and Nikki are keeping their eyes open for clues. Then Alexander spots Principal Vanderpants carrying a white bucket filled with spaghetti through that mysterious locked door on the 13th floor. Why is the principal acting so strangely? Could SHE be the boss-monster?

{My thoughts} – Alexander thinks he has everything figured out in this book. He is still rather sad that Dottie is no longer a part of their monster hunting club, but he is moving past that. Rip and Nikki are still there with him and they are all stronger then ever. They think they know how the Boss Monster is but they aren’t entirely sure either. They decide to do some digging around and when all that information leads to their principal they decide to set a trap and try and catch her.

I can see how they came to that conclusion. However, was it the right one. I’d like to say yes, but you’ll have to read to find that out.

I really enjoyed this book and that the author is able to tie the story together with all the characters. I look forward to reading the last and final book in the series soon!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
